Athens, July 30 2018 – “Navarino Challenge” continues its impressive course with more distinctions. The top sports tourism event was honored this time with the gold award as the best tourism event in Greece at the Event Awards 2018.

The event, which will take place for the 6th consecutive year, in Messinia and Costa Navarino, 12-14 October 2018, enriches its program with new activities for kids. This year’s event includes “beachathlon”, namely track and field races for children at The Dunes Beach under the supervision of the Olympic and European Champion in 400m. with hurdles, Periklis Iakovakis.

Periklis Iakovakis said for the particular activity: “Classic sports have three general categories of racing: running, jumps and throws. This year at Navarino Challenge we will become acquainted with some of these races in a slightly different way. We will not conduct them at a stadium, nor at any other sports venue, but on the beautiful beach of Costa Navarino! Taking advantage of the unique facilities of this area we thought about creating a track and field event on the beach. That’s how we decided to create Beachathlon. On the sand, children will have the opportunity to test their strengths in various track and field sports that will be adapted to this environment. Our goal is to make this acquaintance with the classic sports activities even more entertaining and original and to give the opportunity to children of all ages to discover their abilities at Navarino Challenge Beachathlon! We are looking forward to seeing you all there”. 

Fysiotek Sports Lab will assist the award-winning sports tourism event “Navarino Challenge” with one more innovative activity. Fysiotek Sports Lab, as a pioneer in the field of rehabilitation and preventive medicine in sports, will cover the sports medical needs throughout the event and will support its activities, with a state-of-the-art recovery station in the established running races.
